Special election for 98th assembly district, which includes portions of Waukesha, Sussex and Pewaukee, will be held April 2.
Gov. Scott Walker has called for the special election in the 98th Assembly District, a seat that is vacant because State Rep. Paul Farrow was elected to the 33rd Senate District on Dec. 4.
